Hope for Children's flagship child-focused programs, The School of St Yared and our regular Child Sponsorship Program help hundreds of Ethiopian children annually get access to quality education, and excel both at school and in the community. 

Sponsorship is one of the most effective ways you can make a difference to the life of a vulnerable child and their community in Ethiopia. As a result of disease, poverty and war, these communities include huge numbers of orphaned and vulnerable children and young people at considerable risk of homelessness, abuse and exploitation. For many of these children, quality education is out of reach and opportunities to break the cycle of poverty are few.

By sponsoring a child through Hope for Children, you’ll be ensuring they receive a proper education, nutrition and health care, as well as opportunities to develop confidence and life-skills for a bright future. You’ll also be helping to strengthen that child’s family and broader community so that they can best care for their children in a happy and safe environment.

Experience has also taught us that the best way to transform a child’s life is to support change in their community. For this reason, we also implement development projects that benefit the child’s family and the communities in which they live. These include community health and savings programs that involve households in income-generating activities to effect change in their own lives and those of their children.

What Communication Will I Have with My Sponsor Child?

sponsor communication

Once you are matched with your sponsor child, you’ll receive your child’s profile information and a personal letter from your child with photographs once a year. The children also love to receive letters and photos from their sponsors in Australia and these are delivered personally to Ethiopia approximately three times a year.

As a sponsor, you’ll receive regular newsletters and email communication to update you on all our activities in Ethiopia. You’ll see how your support makes a huge difference to the life of your sponsored child, their family and communities.
